LOL I have the same question...when your lights are on at night you still can see the signals clearly?

It is closer to a plug-n-play kit if you look at the wiring harness. I would like to know if there is an extra plug along side the accessory plug on the 13.
Hey, where did you get the diagram from? Do you have the parts number and prices of the bits?

These LED lights are far too bright to have on with oncoming traffic. I have them wired to my high beam with an aux switch. This way they come on with the high beam but I can also shut them off.
They lights are from Rigid Industries http://www.rigidindustries.com. They have four LEDs that are even blinding in the daylight but for night I can see deer and moose very well.

Thanks. That's sort of what what I figured. I want to get more of a fog than driving light that I can also use during the day to be seen better. If I was driving at night in deer and moose country like you, though, I'd want as bright as I could get.

It actually looks like the Warn light mounts shown in the link would work for about any kind of aux light on the 2013 F800GS. They are listed as being 2013 model compatible and are available on a lot of sites, but the one I picked is the only one I found with pictures of the mounts installed, albeit not on a 2013.

skid plate should all fit since they did not change the frame...its the front end that has made some third parties have to "re-think" their parts

I've seen front fender extensions advertised as fitting all years of the F800GS.

Skid plates may but the body has changed around the rad supports as well as the front fender and windshield mounts. From what I have read the frame remains the same.

I looked at 2013 F800GS closely at the dealer few days ago, it looked the 800 comes with rad guard from factory? Right?

It's a plastic rad cover as always from BMW. The rad protectors from previous models will not fit the 2013.


If you see typos it's my phones fault!

My 650 and the 700's that I've seen from the dealer don't have these stock rad cover. Thanks
